IBM 704 reminiscences by Lee Jennings (Amateur Radio ZL2AL), an IBM CE,
from Robert Garner.

Robert Garner is the leader of the IBM 1401 restoration project at the
Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.  They now have two
operating 1401's, an operating 1620, and an operating PDP-1.  The 1620
doesn't have a 1622 card reader-punch.  Instead, that function is
simulated by a PC -- which does make the appropriate noises.
